I run openSUSE TW and FF with i7-5600U Intel CPU. Calls with ~4 (video) participants work but my CPU load is approaching number of cores. In slightly bigger calls (>=6 participants) the CPU load was insufficient and audio packets were being dropped. I'd like learn more about webrtc video streams in order to reduce the client's CPU work or make it more adaptive when running with limited resources.
Let's pick some old classic game, reverse engineer the data formats and game rules and write an open source engine for it from scratch. Some games from 1990s are simple enough that we could have a playable prototype by the end of the week.
Write which games you'd like to hack on in the comments. Don't forget to check e.g. on Open Source Game Clones, Github and SourceForge whether the game is ported already.
For events like engineering summit or hackweeks, it would be nice to have a SUSE instance of workadventu.re, and have our own maps, wired with (open)SUSE's jitsi!
I am looking for folks willing to help on those 3 teams:
Few months ago I switched my home workstation and media center to Micro OS desktop and I cannot imagine switching back to normal distribution.
After some consideration I realized it should work fine (even better) on the notebook I am using for work.
There is always something to do if you run the infrastructure for such a big project like openSUSE....
Our Admin wiki currently lists over 80 machines - and while we already "salted" some of them, there is always room for improvement and room to learn something new just by making your hands dirty and diving into the administrator role for a machine.
In this project I would like to extend the capabilities of the SLE Release Management Container. This container is used by some colleagues in the SLE Release Management team to have access to osc and other Release Management critical commands inside a container environment. This includes the beta-emails project to send our beta announcements.
SUSE IT needs help from fellow geekos with release engineering skills to define the requirements, process, infrastructure, and tools for building an openSUSE-based distribution bundled with SUSE IT-supported application stack. The resulting OS build will be offered as a standard distribution for new SUSE employees in addition to the existing Operating System library.
We're always struggling at home with the lunches and dinners. Most of the time we realize that by the end of the week that our diet has diverged from what WHO and many other organizations suggest. My idea is to create a scalable database of meals, a web interface and some logic that generates a balanced meal plan for a 5-day or 7-day week.
The Steam Deck is a portable gaming handheld built around platform technology similar to the one found in AMD mobile laptops. Vendor Valve ships a custom Linux distribution with downstream patches on this device, but booting into other distributions is possible. Connecting the Steam Deck to a dock can turn it into a compact workstation.
Since Hackweek 22 this project has been made much easier with the introduction of "ALP Granite" however that project is not in a state where it is ready for us to do significant work without it as such my goals for this hackweek atleast are somewhat less then last Hackweek, hopefully by next hackweek Granite will be in a better place to build on.
Currently software.opensuse.org search is using the OBS binary search for everything, even for packages inside the openSUSE distributions. Let's switch this to use repomd data from download.opensuse.org
SUSE dissolved an old warehouse, containing lots and lots of boxes with old SUSE / SuSE / S.u.S.E software. All of those boxes were originally going to be dumped in March 2021, which could be prevented.
The folks at Asahi linux have been working on porting linux on the Apple Silicon. In a recent blog post they announced they will be joining forces with Fedora on releasing a Fedora Asahi Remix. I would be happy to see this level of collaboration between Asahi and openSUSE community, too.
Logos Competition: openSUSE, Tumbleweed, Leap, Slowroll and Kalpa
The openSUSE Community is considering a new, distinct openSUSE logo to represent the project as well as four new logos for the following openSUSE distributions; Tumbleweed, Leap, Slowroll and Kalpa. There have been discussions of a new openSUSE logo over the years, but the timing to transition to a new logo wasn’t ideal, until now.
